Press release date: March 27, 2014

CHERRY VALLEY, IL – In the first quarter of 2014, Ipsen's Engineered Components Group has seen a large increase in vacuum and atmosphere furnace hot zone and retrofit orders compared to the same period in 2013. Orders include 27 hot zones, 37 controls upgrades and 23 mechanical retrofits for several Ipsen customers, both domestically and internationally, in Steel Brazing, Tool & Die, Medical and Commercial Heat Treatment industry sectors.

"When our customers are looking to prolong the life of their investment, upgrades and retrofits are an ideal solution," said Fred Roth, Ipsen's Engineered Components Manager. "By upgrading your controls to meet industry standards, installing a new hot zone or updating features on your furnaces, you can increase its production capabilities and its lifetime significantly."

Updating your hot zone can increase your efficiency and improve cycle times. Ipsen provides high-velocity, one-piece plenum hot zones supported by a heavy-duty, double-wall steel plenum that allows for easy installation and maintenance removal, outstanding energy efficiency and long-term reliability. By layering high-performance graphite-felt insulation under a carbon fiber shield to create a heat-loss barrier, Ipsen's all-graphite hot zones deliver superior thermal efficiency. For processes that are metallurgically sensitive to contamination caused by graphite, Ipsen offers an all-metal hot zone for increased control over demanding processes. Ipsen's proven, time-tested hot zone designs deliver superior, long-lasting results.

A variety of upgrades to your heat treatment systems allow you to breathe new life into your business by helping you meet demanding industry standards, increase capabilities, save time and be more energy efficient. Adding a SCADA system or a VPN router to your controls can save you time on monitoring and maintenance. Upgrading to a new pumping system can decrease cycle times. Ipsen upgrades provide the operational flexibility you need to refine your processes for precise, repeatable results.   

Planning ahead for upgrades and retrofits can help ensure minimal downtime and a smooth transition. Ipsen's Engineered Components Group works closely with customers to plan delivery and installation during plant shutdowns or other optimal times in order to avoid an interruption in production. As always, Ipsen maintains the quality fit, finish and reliability of all retrofits and upgrades regardless of the original equipment manufacturer.

Whether it's a standard upgrade or a completely custom configuration, Ipsen's Engineered Components Group can provide a package to precisely fit your needs. Visit for more information.
